Everything. Service manuals, old advertisements, anything written or created that can be considered as in the Public Domain. This is a knowledge Archive.

Excellent. Oh boy, this is going to be fun.

I'm guessing that the key is putting in as many keywords as possible so that people can find it?

Take a look at this keywords field; it has a good number of keywords. However I did start using codes (ZOE-000-001 for example) so eventually I can group my items in categories. This is easier to plan from the beginning so that someone can click on that link and pull up all related items; for example:

http://archive.org/details/Zoe_A_Story_Of_Honor_Betrayal_And_Redemption_ brings up the first chapter of the book. and:

http://archive.org/search.php?query=subject%3A%22ZOE-000-001%22 brings up the entire collection.

OK, good to know. I'm currently into page 72 of the 300 page book, "Sam Jones' Anecdotes" from around the 1890s. Can't find a copy anywhere online. Going to upload it all as one PDF.

Here are two that I uploaded yesterday.

http://archive.org/details/TheBereanSearchlight-March1935-VolumeXiv-Number1

Basically, I don't have series, I just have random stuff. I'm going to search the entire house for copyright free stuff and get it uploaded.

Nice to meet you!

You have some good materials here. I have never seen a Berean Searchlight before; it was never copyrighted and is in the Public Domain. Here are some of my links concerning religion:

I think that eventually all of the Archive Materials will be cataloged through the Open Library; see:

They are also started by the same organization.

Thanks! Sorry for showing so much enthusiasm but this place is a dream come true. Can't believe I didn't find it before.

I just started a new thread and need yours, or anyone's, assistance on copyright and understand when an item is in the public domain.
